I have encountered many comparisons to both Fallout and Borderlands in my travels. While there is noticeable commonground between them, Rage manages to inject enough creativity and uniqueness to justify it's own existence as an original, and thoughtful gaming experience, and not a copycat.
The environmental detail in this game is staggering how realistic it is. I almost died several times while I was simply admiring my meticulously crafted surrounding's. The amount of care, and attention to detail that must have went into developing this world is simply beyond my comprehension. It's breathtaking, and it's the best looking game on consoles.
The gameplay is deep, yet very intuitive and accessible. Honestly, Rage is very smooth across the board. The gunplay is varied, with different ammo types for each weapon. Enemy encounters often require tactical thinking, and strategy. Considering the computer AI is so immensely intelligent, conventional shooter methods of engagement would prove futile. Enemies will smoke out campers, dodge incoming attacks, and always respond in such an individualistic way, that there really is no scripted enemy response pattern. This makes the shooting segments so utterly enjoyable for me.
I was initially a bit apprehensive about the implementation of vehicular combat, as i was concerned that it would would come off as tacked on and half-baked (looking at you Borderlands). My concerns were put to rest though, because this isn't a lazy, reproduction of the character movement control scheme. The vehicle controls are fully fleshed out, and function as well as anything the game has to offer.
The story is serviceable at best.Read more ›
The graphics are interesting in a kind of pseudo-cartoon way, and are beautifully detailed. The gameplay mechanics are excellent, shooting and driving are intuitive and satisfying. The enemies are smart and draw you into fun shoot-outs, with plenty of variation in attack styles. I particularly enjoyed the Gearhead levels.
The story is lacking in depth and interest, and you never feel any investment in your objectives. It's difficult to remember the characters or take any interest in their motivations. I just didn't care at all about what I was doing. Where is the rage? The quests are all variations on kill and fetch tasks, and don't require your brain to be activated at all. The rendering is oddly done, as many have mentioned, with detail popping in and out every time you move your head. And the ending is extremely limp and unsatisfying.
Rage took what could have been an excellent FPS and turned it into a mediocre FPS paired with an abysmal RPG. With graphics and mechanics like this, this could have been an amazingly intense experience. But the 'open world' sections sucked all the life out of the game, with no real consequences to your decisions and no depth to the world you are allowed to wander and drive around. The entire game is really just a very pretty 'corridor', with even the shooting sections having no real freedom of movement. You are always just funnelled down a single line of quests and action, apart from trivial side-quests with no real payoff. Where this game should have gone would be to allow you to actively choose your allegiance in this post-apocalyptic world. Do you agree with the need for tyrannical order, and join the Authority? Are you a democrat at heart, joining the Resistance and the settlers?Read more ›
+ Highly detailed, grungy, post-apocalyptic world. My favorite! Fast loading, very smooth running, well polished game. The sky is breathtaking!
+ Control and motion come very natural and easy. Menu's and the option to "defib" yourself back into the game are wonderful.
+ Characters are friendly & inviting; their mission requests are not tedious like other games. I enjoy finding a new location, with a new group of people to talk with, and a new set of missions to accomplish. Voice acting is wonderful. Might recognize a few actors.
+ The Enemy AI is very nice. Enemies will hold a wound after being hit or shot, fall down and shoot back, and make inappropriate comments with others about planning your demise.
+ Open world style, great vehicle choice and driving control, Story and over-all style of the game have a lot of thought put into each detail and aspect of the visual game and game play itself.
+ Multiplayer buggy racing is a lot of fun. I could spend hours just on that. Co-op multiplayer missions are fun to complete, if you can find someone to stay with you the entire level.
+ Game Trophies are not annoying or wearisome; they are fun and will most likely be achieved through regular play through of the game. Keep an eye out for the Playing Cards and recipes though.
+ Wonderful music. Perfect for such an atmospheric game. Mesh very well together.
- You need to remember to save. There are no auto-save or checkpoints throughout the level or area you are in. Can get very frustrating when you are really getting into the game and playing for hours, then die and have to play it all over again.Read more ›

Rage is, at best, a mediocre game. While the world is beautiful and vast, the story is flat, the characters dull, and the game play often more tedious than anything else. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Richard Veysey
